Beer Battered Ginger Chicken!!!





Ginger Chicken:

Chicken Masala. Kozhi Varuval. Kozhi Porichadhu. Kodi Kura.

There are zillion of ways to prepare a chicken, in my kitchen!!! Its hard to resist eating chicken, at least once every single day. I know, I know you are horrified on hearing the word 'fried'! Yeah 'lipophobia' is a national epidemic we all share today.

Definitely this post is not about 'heart healthy' or 'trimming the fat'...its just suitable to anyone, who wants to deepen their 'pleasure of eating'. Walk an extra mile or do something productive at your work place...head home for a juicy pan-fried ginger chicken, now say me a honestly 'are you still guilty'?

Ingredients:

Chicken - I used boneless, skinless, breast meat - cubed! But I recommend bone-in, skin-on thighs for sure.
Green chilies 6-8
Chili sauce 1/2 cup
Salt
Ginger garlic paste 2 spoon
One large purple onion grated
Cilantro 1 fistful
Lemon juice few spoons
Curry leaves 1 fistful(optional)
Beer 1/4 cup(optional)
Oil for pan-frying.

To Garnish:

Ginger julienned 1 cup
Cilantro chopped 1 fistful.

Method:

Add salt and lemon juice to the chicken. Let this stand for a while.

Now pan fry the chicken briefly in hot oil. Do not throw the oil.

Once the meat is done, opaque and crispy...stir-in all the above mentioned ingredients and keep frying over medium to high heat, until you achieve this above finishing color. And its totally the end product' that will compel you to conclude cooking. So, garnish them right away and enjoy:)
